Notes from the July 8 th Session; TOPIC: Edit Free for All

The session opened with Ralph Sutter calling attention to the Links Page. He then opened the page, 27 Photos You Won't Believe - Or At Least You Shoudn't

There, we saw both final images and the tricks employed to achieve them. This served as an appropriate introduction to today's topic.

Prior to the meeting, members downloaded sample inages from and made whatever changes they deemed appropriate.

At the meeting, we compared the results. Some of us applied color correction or cropped the images. Others added objects to them not seen in the originals.

The session prompted a discussion of different editing programs and techniques. Encouraged, we agreed to repeat the format in the near future.
